10:48 pm
a documentary. rewind continues we have to be announced in a letter to the president i read about it and this is the the proudest day of my your private life that was a real turning point because that gives them a lot of confidence that they can beat any team in a shoe on al-jazeera. we've got to be bringing forward new and important bills that's why a queen's speech we're going to do it but the 40. the u.k. prime minister confirms palme and will be suspended just weeks ahead of the brics that deadline the opposition calls it a coup. hello
10:49 pm
and welcome to al-jazeera live from my headquarters and millions of the parana also ahead again and government forces launch an attack on you eat separatists and control of aiden's international airport. a state of alert in gaza after 3 police officers were killed in suicide attacks meant to i so and an open secret al-jazeera uncovers doping amongst kenyan athletes training alongside some of the world's top dramas. we begin with breaking news on break certain u.k. prime minister abbas johnson will suspend apollo meant until mid october or many a saying this is a bid to ensure that the u.k. leaves the european union by the it toy the 31st deadline the opposition is calling the move a coup saying it would leave members of parliament a little time to debate breaks it promise to johnson and says though that this is
10:50 pm
the right thing to do. this is a new government with a very exciting agenda to make our streets safer which very important we bring violent crime down we need to invest in our fantastic n.h.s. we need to level up education funding across the country we need to invest in the infrastructure that's going to take this country forward for the decades and we need to deal with the cost of living moving to a high wage high productivity economy which is i think what this country needs to be and to do that we need new legislation we've got to be bringing forward new and important bills and that's why we are going to have a queen's speech and we're going to do it on october the 14th well let's go now to our correspondent lara flynn who's joining us live from london and we have heard so much criticism an outrage so how will the prime minister navigate those lines what's his plan. as
10:51 pm
a starting point is that ever since he became prime minister. around himself with the people who were in charge of the believe in the referendum and who all the most . of all the bricks that the man who's more or less is chief of staff now. he. thinks that basically as as a group of people. they are not fit for purpose and the way in which this administration has framed the brics a challenge now is very much seen as the people's parliaments the people gave governments a mandate to leave the european union and parliament they say is simply obstructing us and getting in the way and so for all the things that boris johnson said in that sound bites about we've got a new government we need a new queen's speech he doesn't have to do any of those things now he doesn't need a queen's speech actually to do some of these bits of policy you want to do it so
10:52 pm
it's in that sense. but by. out of the way for a full 5 weeks and limiting the amount of time they have to try to 0 unseat him and his plan is effective thrown down the gauntlet see them saying do you actually have the will and the result to try to get rid of me to get rid of my government and potentially to reverse bricks it's literally with about 6 weeks or 6 weeks to go and so it is a complete standoff now between him and his policies and those people want to try. and time. for the against. one of the options in the short period of time they have. ended. it had been their plan to legislate creates a new law. which would delay brecht sits with
10:53 pm
a view to the european parliament the european council and the european union giving them more time to go back to formulate some of the deal but in order to do that they that there needs to be a mechanism by which they can pass a law and the trouble is you've only got one week next week actually the week before in parliament starts before it's going to be suspended and there's nothing actually in that 5 day period allows them to create a new law to do that so that's one problem for them the other problem is if they try to have a vote of no confidence in the government to try to. thing like that it relies on at least 20 or 30 conservative politicians so votes against their own government is not it's all clear if the numbers are actually there to do that so it's becoming perilously difficult for them to try to work out exactly how they going to do it they're still saying they're going to go down the legal routes to to try to form a new law to stop it. work out when they're going to be able to do that because the gap between the queen's speech on the 14th of october and then the european council
10:54 pm
meeting on the 17th is leaves and no time to do it but this is why the key there's so angry so many people saying this is a coup a constitutional outrage this for example from the opposition leader john mickel been it is a constitution that rage this is an attempt by a prime minister who is elected by a very small number of people in the country who's served to party membership to ride roughshod over power meant and prevent any legislation and debate that would stop this country leaving the e.u. without a deal and all the problems that it would cause he seems to want to run headlong into the arms of donald trump. more determination to see this before this is extraordinary he needs to be held to account by parliament not by shutting down parliament but by attending parliament announcing the questions. the other thing that's caused a lot of anxiety here mental sushil experts is the role of the queen in all this
10:55 pm
nonpolitical figure has now been asked formally by boris johnson to suspend almonds placing her in the middle of this row between the importance of the executive of governments parliaments who are those 2 is the most important and that's and that's the invidious situation for her to be in and that's why people saying this is completely uncharted sochi for the u.k. and the democratic crisis really thoughtful for the country we've never been in. lawrence thank you very much for that for now that is lauren in london thank you. we're going to move on to other news now and yemen's u.n. recognized government has launched an attack against u.s. backed southern separatists in aden would have taken control of the international airport and presidential palace it's the latest move to recapture the port city from the separatist forces 2 weeks after they lost control of it all flights to the airport were suspended workers evacuated due to the fighting and the u.n. says at least 40 people have been killed in several days of fighting hundreds more

10:57 pm

10:58 pm

with an explosives laden motorcycle he left out of one checkpoint just an agent remotely killing 2 policemen he then went on with explosives attached to himself and designated himself in those explosives killing a 3rd policeman this is an assad which has come out of the blue there are people on the streets here to market it has shocked people in gaza hamas for all of the failings inside gaza the economic troubles the security problems with israel have come to at least rely on hamas to some extent for internal security so this has come as a shock there's a good deal of outrage and support for what we understand to be a crackdown being undertaken by how our security forces against the suspects and this goes suspects be sol office pro isis al qaida style ideology groups now they have long been opposed to what has been going on in the south of gaza in
